Here’s the thing. All Geoffrey wanted to do was have a good time at the zoo. Since Geoffrey is only four, you wouldn’t think that would be too much to ask. Unfortunately, the universe was not working in Geoffrey’s favor on zoo-trip day, and everything went to hell in a hand basket faster than you can say, “Pull my cart.” Here’s what Geoffrey endured: the zebras, the giraffes, and then he “wasted [his] time to see the lions, the pumas, and the bears.” All thanks to some so-called “friends” and the evil Mama and Papa. “I really wanted to make this day good,” he asserts.

And Now “Mad Men” Nail Polish

Mad Men” costume designer Janie Bryant wins my award for multitasking and branding this year. Not only is she extraordinary at outfitting the cast in ’60s-era fashions and designing a QVC line based on “Mad Men,” but she’s also adding nail polish to her growing to-do list. Bryant has partnered with Nailtini, a brand based in California, to create four limited-edition nail lacquers based on the hit show.

The lacquers will retail for $14 each at CVS’ Beauty 360 and Duane Reade’s Look stores.
